October is domestic violence awareness month.
The Family of Justice Center is holding a special event later this week to commemorate this special month.
This Thursday the Family Justice Center of Northwest Louisiana is putting on a ‘People of Courage’ benefit luncheon.
The luncheon will be at Sam’s Town Hotel $50.00 a ticket.
It’s held for those who work with the victims of domestic violence.
The money raised from the event goes back to service the victims and survivors of domestic violence.
Derrick L. Henderson, Assistant executive director of Northwest Louisiana Family Justice Center says, “the point is not to re-victimize the victim and so it used to be where you go to one spot for this service, across town for another service and so we just have everything under one roof.
The director of the office for victims of crime Darlene Hutchinson will be the guest speaker.
The luncheon will be Thursday and start at 11:30 at Sam’s Town Hotel-Casino.
